Divorce is not simply the end of a marital union but also the division of two entire lives. Under Minnesota law, the court must make a just and equitable division of all marital property. In many cases, an equitable property division may be an equal division of debts and assets.

Minnesota Marital &
Non-marital Property Division

In Minnesota all property or debts acquired after the marriage and before the valuation date is presumed to be marital property and subject to division at the time of divorce regardless of title.  For example, property held in one spouse’s name can only be considered marital property if it was acquired during the marriage. However, it may be possible to claim that certain property as non-marital if it was acquired prior to the marriage, or otherwise gifted and/or inherited during the marriage.

If either spouse can prove that parts of the parties’ estate is considered non-marital property, that property will normally not be subject to division as part of the marital estate.

Real or personal property acquired before, during or after the marriage, can be considered Non-marital property if:

  1. Acquired as a gift, bequest, devise or inheritance by a third party
  2. Acquired before the marriage
  3. Acquired after the valuation date
  4. Excluded by a valid antenuptial agreement.
